    The only thing that counts is real world productivity, and you seem to agree at the end of your post while differing in the beginning. :D:D:D

    The benchmark/theoretical variables are a non-issue.

    These are the only variables that count:
    I have $$$$$$ to spend, and I have a current platform for my well-documented workload. Does a new platform allow me to complete my current workload in a shorter timeframe, or can I do more in the same timeframe?

    No? No deal.

    Yeah? Take my $$$$$$ now!!!

    Everything else is just hot air and youtube, clickbait videos. :)

    hey bennyg -

    I have an i7-8750H CPU in my eSports Arena Overpowered OP-LP2 laptop, and it runs circles around quite a few AlienWare, Asus, HP and MSI laptops with the i7-9750H CPU, in both Cinebench R20 and Geekbench 4.4.1 (x64) - both very close to "real-world" benchmarks (as opposed to Passmark or Sisoft Sandra, for example).

    -Trev

    Mostly due new stepping(implemented security patches) for i7-9750H

    Gotcha -

    btw, I meant "Cinebench R20" (not R15)..

    I can't quite figure it out, since the 9750H has a raw 400 MHz clock speed advantage over my 8750H, yet mine routinely trounces it in single IPC and multi- performance, while completely maintaining its thermal composure. Maybe "Throttle Stop" to the rescue, here? (One can only wonder how 9750s would fare with it).

    Then, of course, there's the i9-9900K, an 8C/16T beast. Smoly hokes!

    The implemented security patches will take a hit on the performance. With Throttlestop tweaks and equal cooling it should be around equal performance or slightly higher performance for 9th gen i7-9750H. Depends on what you’re running. But in short it doesn’t matter what of them you have. Still a BGA Tragedy.

    Not sure what you mean by a "BGA Tragedy", as my 8750H-based laptop is a barn-burner, from the word "go". Do you mean that since the CPU is BGA (just as the 9750h is, too), that it can't be upgraded? It's true, it can't be upgraded. But that's irrelevant to me, since I knew from the outset that I didn't need it to be upgradable - it's wicked fast enough. I also knew from the outset that this laptop will be fairly "future-proof" for several years to come... especially since it also has an nVidia GTX-1060 GPU with 6GB DDR5 (RTX ray-tracing to me is still mostly hype, is still in its infancy, and won't be mainstream for quite a while). I also have a Samsung 512GB nVME PCIe 3 x16 SSD, along with 16 GB (2 x 8GB) of Crucial Ballistix DDR4 2666 MHz RAM, @C11. The screen is a 15.6" 144Hz IPS panel. Plus, I bought it brand new last December 2018 for only $799 USD (I added the SSD and Win10 Pro). I have absolutely zero regrets. This thing's a beast in its own right, and an incredible bargain to boot.

    I’m hoping ice lake will entice me enough to finally upgrade from sandy bridge.

    If Coffee Lake couldn't entice you to upgrade from Sandy Bridge, I don't see how Ice Lake will, given what we've seen of 10nm so far has been disappointing to say the least, at least in terms of clockspeeds.
